Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Waste disposal and accumulation is an important challenge facing our world. Membrane synthesis is not immune to this issue, as membranes are commonly synthesized using fossil fuel-derived polymers and toxic solvents such as DMF. Due to this environmental impact, special attention should be paid to the materials and synthetic processes utilized in membrane fabrication. This Special Issue aims to cover the latest developments in applying a sustainability mindset from membrane synthesis, membrane use, and final reuse/degradation. Articles covering any sustainable membranes or sustainability-driven membrane purification are welcome in this Special Issue.

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Membranes is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2200 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
